    Although I purchase a brand name 1/4 inch tape, it seems to have too much adhesive;leaving a bit of residue on my fabric. I find myself placing the length of tape I plan to use on a piece of scrap fabric:lifting and replacing several times to remove some adhesive before using the tape on my project. I do not leave it on overnight. Is anyone having this issue? I recently read an article suggesting regular rubbing alcohol can be used to remove any such residue.

    "Goof off" may work. I'm wondering if you just found a bad batch of tape. Can you contact the manufacturer?

    This is new for me. I haven't been introduced to 1/4" quilters tape or the purpose of it.

    Quilter's tape can be used to mark quilting lines on a quilt top. I've also used it to mark the seam allowance, when hand piecing.

    interesting - the tape I've used - which was purchased years ago - didn't want to stay on very well

    That's what fuzzy flannel pajamma pants are for -- to stick your tape on and reduce the tack before using on your quilt.

    I buy the tape from an auto paint store used in the automobile painting industry for pin striping, 1/4 inch wide, not extremely sticky and works fine and much, much less expensive than the quilter's tape.
